That's part of the lower housing. You can see the grommet between chassis and housing - it's a square section of foam. The 2 hoses from the matrix enter at this point.

You need to pull the lower housing forward to release it from the lip of the upper housing. It will then drop down. The screws you see on the underside are for securing the pipework inside.

The grommet is just a square section of foam and the shiny vent is part of the lower housing.

Maybe it's time to look in the engine bay and see if the hoses are fouling on anything stopping the lower housing being pulled forward.

With all the clips undone/cable ties off and with the column at the front fully raised, the lower housing should at least have dropped several mm.

In the pictures you've provided, I can't see anything that could be causing a problem.

I notice that looking under the engine up to the bulkhead where the pipes enter there are two of those horrible spring hoseclips on the engine side of the bulk head. No one has yet mentioned in their description about

having to undo the clips until they have got the matrix out. Might it be that I have to undo the clips there first (if I can get to them) and take off the rubber hoses from there.I thought the clips connecting the metal pipes of

the matrix to the rubber pipes were on the inside of the lower casing..........? Basically what I'm saying is ..I think the rubber pipes might join the metal on the engine side....What do you think??? ...What ever this thing

won't budge enough to be able to get the matrix out

Many thanks for your time and concern .Regards Nigel

this is as far as it will go. Can't see any fixings on bulk head either from engine side or the passenger cabin side.

The matrix is at the angle you can see it at - it's just how it is.

Those hose clips could be fouling on the bulkhead. It's about all that's left that could be restraining the matrix.

I replaced the hoses as mine were shot and got rid of those horrible spring clips - I now use a pair of Jubilee clips.
